Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday. Today my to-do list is a mile long. Projects for work to finish, projects at home, prepping to host an event this weekend, meal prep, SO much laundry, and loving on my sweet girl are all on the agenda today. Good thing I slept right through my alarm, right?

We ended last week with a bang by ripping out all of the previous owner's landscaping at our house and really opening up our backyard. It is such an improvement but now we have to wait for grass to grow and make a few final decisions before it will have kind of "finished" look. I'm learning that with landscaping, and most home projects actually, I'm kind of an immediate gratification kind of girl. I'm having to channel my patience here but am excited to see what it all looks like in the spring.

The new blog design is basically finished but I'm still undecided what I want to do about the name, as I mentioned in last week's post.
